    I took 265 and passed. I didn't take Kaplan, but a friend who did said they told them that 1 in 4 automatically gets all 265 questions, whether or not it could have been determined if they passed or failed on less.

    So for those who get 265, keep the faith- it doesn't automatically mean you failed. I'm proof!

    That so good to hear. I honestly think I failed, because I had a variety of peds to newborns, to psych and maternity, lots of infection control, only 11 SATA's and the rest were priority. Many of them were hard because there were 2 possibilities (like always!)......but we will see. I was there to the 265! Crazy. So, is it really auotmatic that someone will write to 265? Just randomly? I hear so many myths. I just want the pass next to my name!

    Hey congrats again to you!

    Just wanted to add my 2 cents on some test takers randomly getting all 265...
    A member of my nursing school faculty was actually a question writer for the 2008 NCLEX and she told us specifically that no one will "randomly" have 265 questions... That the # of questions you get is directly related to your individualized answers...

    I admire all of you who lasted to 265, what a feat! I posted in another thread that God only gave me what I could handle and that was 75. Congrats to all the new RNs of 2008 and praying for those of you patiently waiting.

    Thats what they were told, that 1 in 4 gets 265. Randomly. My 265 was like that, peds, OB, psych, maternity, lots of infection control, and tons of prioritizing. And from what my friends who have taken it said, they got about they same.

    Hello to everyone waiting :chuckle and CONRATS to all who have waited and passed.

    I took NCLEX yesterday here in NH, everyone in my class who took it found out by 9:30am the next day. Sooo now it's 11 am and Im still waiting. I keep saying im going to check it every half hour but Im really checking it every 2 minutes. OMG I now have developed OCD..

    Good luck to my fellow waiters
